It’s time for the last (but certainly not least) member of our crew of interns this summer – Anna!  She’s been with us since the beginning of the summer and unfortunately is leaving us next week to head back to school for the Fall semester.  We’ve had a blast working with her and she’s been doing some incredible work on some of the Museum’s digital initiatives – meet Anna!

What are you studying and where?  Computer Science and Art History at Truman State University (editorial note: How cool is that?! – can you think of two more completely different majors?!  Luckily her diverse skillset been a huge help here at CHM as we deal with tech issues and some other neat projects.)

Why Campbell House?  It is an amazing place and it gave me the opportunity to use both of my majors.

What are you working on at CHM?  I am creating a virtual 3D model of the Lucas Place neighborhood (Campbell House was the first house built on Lucas Place and today is the last original structure remaining) using the Virtual City platform and doing some work on CHM’s website.

When you aren’t having a blast at Campbell House, what are you doing?  I’ve been working on my summer classes in Contemporary Art and Macroeconomics, volunteering at the St. Louis Art Museum, and hanging out with friends. (one of whom is fellow intern and fellow Truman State-er Jamie)

What is your favorite thing about CHM thus far?  Tours through the house, I love all of the history of the house, the family and the neighborhood.

iPhone or Android?  Android

Favorite color?  Green

Favorite band?  Led Zepplin

Little know fact about yourself?  I have backpacked the Grand Canyon twice!

If you could have had the starring role in one film already made, what movie would you pick and why?  “Singing in the Rain” because then I’d be tap dancing machine!

 


And that, ladies and gentlemen, concludes our “Meet the Interns” series for the Summer of 2014. We’ve had a blast getting to know and work with such a diverse and engaging group of students over the past few months and can’t wait to see where their futures take them! Campbell House is now accepting applications for Fall 2014 interns – please visit our website for more information on student internships and other volunteer opportunities.
